Best Answer

They come from a structure called the Lacrimal Gland locate in the sperior lateral part of the eye socket. Tears are distibuted onto the eyeball by the Lacrimal Ducts. They are then spread by the eyelids which eventually push the fluid Medially towards the Lacrimal lake (technical term for the tear drop often seen under the eye). From the lacrimal lake the Cannaliculi (what most people, including the answer above, see as the tear ducts) drain the fluid into the Lacrimal sac from which the Nasolacrimal Ducts carry the fluid into the middle meatus of the nose.
